Upcoming Star: Mathias Anderle!







Hey Everyone-

Hope all of you had an exciting holiday, I wanted to introduce a good friend and longtime client of mine, Mathias Anderle.  Mathias auditioned with us back in August of 2005, and was obviously Seattle Talent material, he was a super handsome, and super sweet young guy, and came from a very happy and close-knit family.  He had success almost immediately, signing with Seattle Models Guild, and booking work with Macy's, Nordstrom, and Nordstrom.com.  He took some time off to pursue soccer at a very high level, and ran into another one of our Seattle Talent stars Brannon Tompkins, who was having some success, and came back and met with me to get started again. He has been back taking workshops, and seriously practicing, and he is one our most promising kids participating at a convention in LA.  In addition to being an actor and model, Mathias is also been working hard on his music.  He has found an acoustic style very close to Jack Johnson and John Mayer, and both his guitar work and his voice are unique.  Even more impressive is his first single, "Kisses in the Rain".  I can't wait to post all of the successes he enjoy's at the convention, and it could not happen to a cooler or classier young guy.  You can check out his music at www.myspace.com/mathiasanderlemusic. The link is in the links section to the right. Here are photo's of this exciting young triple threat:

Success Story: Andrey Ivanoff









This is Andrey, the older of the "Brothers Ivanoff" who are doing so much now in the modeling and fashion world. Andrey is signed with the best modeling agencies in the business, Wilhelmina LA, and Ford of Europe. I could probably post something new every week from this exciting new model, he really is going to make Seattle Talent proud. He just flew home from Paris because he has been booked to be the exclusive model for a huge new Trousardi campaign. This should be the start of a great modeling career, and it couldn't be happening to a nicer guy, Andrey is as classy of young man as I have ever worked with at Seattle Talent. Here are some great new photo's of Andrey Ivanov, our new modeling superstar:

Success Story: Brannon Tompkins




Hey Everyone, here is another great acting and modeling success story, Mr. Brannon Tompkins. He started with us in January, and has some fantastic things happen already. He signed across the board with Superior Talent LA, and I have heard nothing but amazing things from his Talent Agent, Andrew Crusse. Brannon when to LA in August, and was able to act in a few commercials, including both acting and dancing in a national commercial for the Nintendo HSM3 Wii video game, directed by Disney High School Musicals own Kenny Ortega! He also appeared as the main model of a French Childrens clothing catalog. Brannon is a genuinely nice guy, and I expect quite a bit from this great young actor.

Seattle Talent Success Story!



Here is yet another fantastic little actor from Seattle Talent!  Brian Baumgaurten has filmed a big commercial for Cranium Family Addition.  He is a super cute little kid, who went and did very well at a convention in LA.  He has been with Seattle Talent for a couple of years now, and big things are expected of this guy.  Here is his commercial, he is the one who builds the pirate ship made of sand:

  

Fantastic new Seattle Talent model!




Here is a great new model of Seattle Talent, Sarah Walker.  She has been placed with a great local Seattle Modeling agency, Seattle Models Guild, but we have much higher hopes for her. She has had interest from both the Beatrice modeling agency and the Major modeling agency (excellent European modeling agencies), and I think with her height and very delightful personality, she should really break through into the high fashion modeling world, she certainly has had a lot of attention by some of the top modeling agents from Seattle to LA to NY. Sarah is one of the best models to come from Seattle Talent in the last two years. Here are a few photo's of this future modeling star:
